  1. I would say it's a 3 for Palin, because the public has just accepted it as one of those "things politicians do."

    It's actually, after the election has finished, looking pretty good. I'm just going to use the 80 soft map to make it look better. Sadly, the rest of the 80soft scenario is a bit strange (Especially issue centres) Updates: Atlantic Accord is now "Equalization" to also take advantage of Ontario's general unease with the system, Danny Williams has been added as an endorser. Arts is also an addition, along with crime, that will make Harper's life in Quebec not fun.
  3. I like the new regions, but I dare say the Conservative alternates are waaaaaaay overrated, esp. Mulroney and MacKay.

    No, he doesn't. I've never seen a single interview/platform plank where he wants to give the monarch more powers. He wants them to be move visible, if that's what's confusing you.

    I've never found him personally to be anti-Israel itself, but he is an isolationist in Pat Buchanan type terms.

    Canada is a monarchy. Just because someone's a monarchist doesn't mean they don't believe in democracy.

    Prime Minister Forever - Canada 2008 Released!

    Good show getting rid of the nonsense parties...cleans things up considerably. There's some better pictures of Harper on the Conservative site, if you're looking for one. I'll email you a copy of what I did for 08, just for some issue ideas, etc.
  8. I would put both Pallin and Obama at 2...both are, in my mind, very similar in that category. The only tipper for me would be that Obama had to win a Senate race in Illinois over a governorship in a fairly small state, but that's offset by the fact his opponent was a joke. I know with my Canadian scenarios, I generally go: 1-Inexperience is a crippling issue. 2-Inexperience is an issue, some legislative/financial experience. 3-High ranking Cabinet post provincially/Federally, involvement with policy; Or presumed to be ready by media/populace. 4-Short-term incumbent; High ranking inner Cabinet positions. 5-Multiple term incumbent.
  9. He used to post often on this board when we had the open political discussion. Him, me, a guy named Mantis, and a few others used to basically rapid-fire flame each other lovingly. We all had a good time.
  10. I have a map you may want to use, PM me if you're interested. Haha, good ol' Simon. Man, this board used to be so much fun...

    Thanks for the candidate updates, thought I put Fortier in, guess I didn't save. Stockwell Day will never lead a Canadian party again. He's been a decent minister, but too many scars among people in caucus who should be his base. Prentice is a good call, may add him. The NDP is losing their (Very good) candidate in Central Nova, she's probably running in Halifax this time around, and MacKay doesn't win by landslides. I hope to see a riding poll soon.

    Might as well start a new thread... http://rapidshare.com/files/127393560/Canada_-_2008.zip.html Tell me what you think...few points I'm wondering: -Party relations...good, or a bit too negative for everyone? From my personal view, the Bloc-Liberal relation is the worst, but other viewpoints are welcome. -Green shift...in there adequately? Didn't want to create one "issue", so divided it between two that are already there. -Pictures, especially Layton...he looks much better on TV than in photographs. I still have to catch up on ridings, so shoot away while I keep going. Don't be shy.

    http://www.theoryspark.com/political_games...arios/index.htm Go to "Ultimate United North America", download. It's not a bad map. Saskguy made a better one, but I have't seen him around in a bit.

    Um, Ok, I guess. Have fun making the scenario. There should be one in the 2004 scenario files that has a map in it, if you need one.
